McDonald’s is one of the most famous fast food chains in the world. Within decades, the brand has expanded in a very poor way in most countries of the world and is now one of the companies that issues the most bills annually.
Despite its great reputation, there is a problem within McDonald’s that has become a state issue. McFlurry has become one of his most iconic and beloved by the public, a delicacy within reach of a select few, due to the many times the ice cream machine has decided to stop working.
An app created to find out where the McFlurries investigation is in the United States
So, regular glitches in the gadgets have made McFlurries, the fast food giant’s most famous orgasm, at times out of reach for many of its addicts.
The problem has become so frequent among US states that an online application has been created to track devices that are doing well in the country to get the desired McFlurry. This fact has gone so far that even the US government wanted to intervene.
Franchisees warn that machines suffer from numerous malfunctions
As an article in the Wall Street Journal claims, the Federal Trade Commission decided to contact the fast food company’s franchisees over the summer for information about broken ice cream machines.
McDonald’s franchisees themselves were the first to complain about the constant malfunctions plaguing these types of ice cream machines, as they then need a nightly cleaning cycle that can fail, along with a technician to fix them up and start them up again.
His move to the Federal Trade Commission comes as the Biden administration takes a deep look at whether manufacturers are stopping owners from repairing broken products themselves.
These events sparked a group of advocates for the “right to fix” movement, arguing that companies should not make it nearly impossible for users and independent technicians to fix modern products, as is the case at McDonald’s.
McDonald’s defends itself and does not believe it is being investigated
